Friedrichshafen, Germany – Wide, wider, widest: Is this the trend that will shape bikes in 2017? Plus sizes, not just in tires but also for other bike components, are already in style this year in the biking scene. But apparently it just won’t be enough width. Working towards an unprecedented 36 gears may be part of the craze. In any case, bike experts are already certain that the 12th sprocket is on the way. Whether they’re right will become apparent at the next Eurobike, from August 31 to September 04, 2016.

Disc brakes are fast dominating the cycling world, and they are increasing their prominence in the road-racing scene. It will not come as a surprise when every road bike at the racing level is equipped with this piece of motorcycle-inspired component in the near future. However, it does come as a rude shock when Francisco Ventoso, a road-racing cyclist who rides for UCI Movistar Team, rallied for disc brakes to be abolished from the road-racing scene altogether.
As distinct as they may be, cycling enthusiasts and green activists now have a common ground to rejoice about. In a press announcement by the Ministry of National Development (MND), developers will have to take the needs of pedestrians and cyclists into consideration when developing new infrastructures.
